For each selection, please explain the financial and non-financial support from each
Friends and family
We do not recognize building a business on family and friends who has limited financial capabilities and objectives in live that may differ from day to day business.
Investment is strongly supported by individuals to become partners investing in time and other resources to projects.
Proposals were sent and are in the consideration process.
We plan to work with NGO to coordinate and select school feeding programs and other NGO activities.
System can be tailored for business and factories for water supply. Co-investment with Fund is thought to develop hybrid low cost water supply to business workers and in return we develop commercial products to market.
Regional government & National government
Very expensive to work with and time consuming with little or no interest in development.
This is our sources of revenue from city dwellers and villagers.
We have in mind to work with them at Fund level to obtain co-investment for water system development
Leading banks invested in real estate, directly or through their clients. Much to develop in order to size and support water system for their operations and projects.
How do you plan to grow and/or diversify your base of support in the next three years?
The water business is in constant growth for several years now. Cambodia has not experience water products diversification yet and much has to be discovered in untapped commercial niches.
We expect slow response from villager consumers, as many are not aware of contaminations danger. Awareness is important to communicate and develop a relationship. The first year we target commercial focus on low income dwellers where water is costly. Through promotion we aim to select dwellers connected with native villagers to become distributors. In year two we foresee a solid customer’s base and a network of distributors in villagers, ready to consider water treatment model on site.
Project can be replicated from existing deep well or river access anywhere in Cambodia. Initiative model is to locate Artisan in Mineral Water plant in the near of populated areas to capture business and supply water at low cost to villagers and city dwellers.
